Victoria - Residents in the tropical paradise where Prince William and Kate are reportedly honeymooning say they're proud to host the royal couple.

British media said the pair jetted off to the Seychelles on Tuesday. The archipelago in the Indian Ocean is home to sandy beaches, clear waters and secluded hideaways.

Local newspaper splashed the headline: "Seychelles in the Honeymoonlight". And the owner of one local pub said she'd be happy to see the royal couple eat at her restaurant.

A company that owns many exclusive, lush islands in remote locations has refused to give out any details of the honeymoon until it is over.

Buckingham Palace has requested the royal couple's privacy be respected while they are on holiday.
